One day this won't be a pregnancy blog...

This blog has been hijacked by a very sick pregnant girl. I'm hoping she's replaced by a very happy, able to eat anything she wants pregnant girl soon. :-)

I haven't had internet access at my parent's house for days now because of the weather, hence the lack of posting. Which could also be attributed to the nausea. And taking care of Caleb, who's been sick. All have prevented me from updating you guys since I got out of the hospital.

I'm staying with my parents this week while Justin's out of the country. Saturday and Sunday were still pretty bad days; I could only keep cereal down. I called the doctor on Monday and they said I could take the nausea pills every 4-6 hours instead of the recommended 8 because they weren't working at all. Right now I'm just functioning from nausea pill to nausea pill. I don't dare skip one yet. I'm still not able to eat much and nothing really sounds good. I'm eating a lot of cereal still and popsicles. I try to eat some fruit and other healthy stuff as I think I feel like it, but I usually don't get very far. I ruled out going to restaurants since every time I do, I lose my dinner in the bathroom. I'd rather take my chances in the privacy of my own home. :-)

We had to take Caleb to the doctor here on Monday because he wouldn't eat (he would just cry when he put food in his mouth) and wouldn't sleep. This momma and his Grandma were/are very tired from waking up multiple times a night with him! He has a really bad case of thrush. He's doing a lot better with the medicine they gave him and is finally sleeping through the night again. If it's not one thing it's 20 around here! (the dog is sick, too. *sigh*)

So, pretty much all I can think about these days is keeping Caleb occupied (which is easier said than done since it's been raining for days and he can't go outside) and trying to force any amount of food down my throat (and pray it stays there).

I hope one day soon to be back to "normal" and talking about something other than being sick. I know y'all are tired of hearing it, but this blog is functioning as my pregnancy journal for now. In a couple of years when I decide I want another child, I can look back at these posts and decide if that's really what I want to do! I told Justin when I was pregnant with Caleb that if we had any more children, they would have to come from his body. I now remember why I said that, and I wasn't nearly as sick that time as I am this time (and it ended about 6 weeks ago with Caleb!). I'm sure I'll conveniently forget all of this in the months to come; that mommy amnesia is pretty strong once you're holding your baby in your arms! ;-)

Until then, I have 2 1/2 more hours before the next nausea pill and Caleb is laying quietly in his bed, so I'm off to lay on the couch!

(Oh, I'm feeling the baby move a lot these days! It's finally big enough for me to feel the movements, and that is definitely a blessing!)

You are such a trooper, Jenn! I know it's not easy to find that bright side when you're losing your lunch all the time. I continue to pray for you, and I ask God to give my best friend some RELIEF! But I know He is taking good care of you even though it has been hard. I am so, so thankful your family is nearby and can help!

It will pass and fortunately at the worse, it will only last 9 months. It may feel like forever, but you'll have a light at the end of the tunnel soon enough...

Jenn I'm sorry you're still having such a rough time. I am thankful that your parents are close enough that you can find some comfort and relaxation with them. They're very sweet. Please know, we're praying for you.

I am so sorry that you're feeling so sick. Like you said, this will all be worth it one day, I promise!! Hang in there. And congrats on the movements! That always makes it a little more real for me.

I am so sorry you are dealing with pregnancy sickness still. I bet you wanna trash any article that states the good ole "the second trimester is wonderful". My first pregnancy was a dream, then I was pregnant again and I had horrible acid reflux and nausea the entire time. This proves not to believe anything you read -- except God's word!!! :)

Laura said...

Jen, you are in my thoughts all the time! I really am praying that this subsides soon and in the meantime, I'm so grateful for the help you have from time to time!
